We took the Irish train from Dublin to Galway and drove to the lovely Ballinalacken Castle Country House in Doolin, County Clare. The rooms were large and nicely furnished. We stayed in room 16 with a field of wild flowers and a view of the ocean and the Cliffs of Mohr in the distance. It was a short drive to Doolin and 3 great pubs, however, the restaurant at the Castle is excellent and well worth the price. Cecelia and Declan were both knowledgable on EVERYTHING in the area. They were accommodating in every way, even allowing us to have breakfast a little early on the day we had to leave. There were lots of activities possible. Our daughters and niece went kayaking in a neighboring village and we took the walk along the cliffs of Mohr. We all took the boat ride to the cliffs and to the nearest Aran Island. My only complaints would be that the Internet was spotty (who cares?) and the stay was too short! Don't miss the tour of the castle!
